I would, but my husband is not for it at all. Selfish or not, he says anything that grows within my body belongs to our family. Obviously your SO really would have to be on board for something like this!

I would not and neither would my dh. I am a terrible pregnant person feeling tired and sick throughout the entire pregnancy. I think for our family it would be way too much burden to place on my husband and kids for me to hand the baby over to another family. Especially because here in Canada it is illegal to take any kind of compensation besides covering costs like gas and parking for appointments and maternity clothes.
Thank you Patty for my awesomy siggy!

I would consider being a surrogate for my sister. I am not sure if I would end up doing it, but I would think about it. For anyone else, no.

As for why yes, my newlywed sister and her dh will make great parents, we're close, all those things. As for why not, I just couldn't do it for anyone else, where I wouldn't know where the baby went etc. Also, I would rather have root canals done on all of my teeth in one sitting than ever give birth again, and I wouldn't go through that for anyone but my sister.

The only person I could ever see myself doing it for is my sister. I think I'd have a hard time NOT becoming attached to the baby, so to have it still in the family would make it possible for me to do.
